The Reality About Switching to Linux

Posted 02-28-2007 at 05:42 PM by raldz

Alan Pope made an interesting article about his experience in using Linux, particularly Ubuntu. Being a MEPIS Linux user, I found his article applicable to the Linux community in general. With all permissions granted from Alan, I have re-written the article to make it a general Linux experience. What's your experience? Read full article here..

Bye-bye Beryl

Posted 02-27-2007 at 02:01 PM by wolfger

Well, it was a short but steamy affair. Beryl was very sexy, but she had some... problems. For one thing, she didn't like my gaming addiction. "Guild Wars under Cedega? No way, buddy."

Sorry Beryl, but nobody comes between me and my MMORPG. It's back to KDE for me. Give me a call when you're more mature.

Centrino / IPW 2200 Wireless for Mandriva 2007

Posted 02-23-2007 at 10:52 AM by taupist

It's absolutely critical that you get the right firmware for your driver . . .

http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/firmware.php

For Mandriva 2007 that would be the 3.0 version of the firmware.

You then have to create a soft link to "/lib/firmware" (which is where your firmware should be); As Root, issue this command in the terminal ln -s /lib/firmware /etc/firmware Next, open "Configure Your Computer", go to "Set up a new network interface"...

Beryl

Posted 02-22-2007 at 08:36 AM by wolfger

One of the cool things about Mepis 6.5 beta 5 is that it's Beryl-ready (almost) out of the box. For myself, with an Nvidia graphics card, I had to make one small modification (change Mepis default "nv" driver in xorg.conf to "nvidia" driver) to get Beryl to run without crashing. I'm still learning the ropes of Beryl, and I can't say that it's terribly intuitive or user friendly to set up, but the eye candy is phenomenal. And it's not just eye candy, either... having a mini screen...
